Janan Nichols is the Co-Founder and CEO of JAG International Inc, a global support service provider for international workers’ compensation carriers that include DBA coverage. Janan has nearly two decades of DBA industry experience and was a founding partner in two other companies providing services similar in scope.
Janan’s career in this specialized industry began with her work at a prominent defense workers’ compensation law firm based in San Francisco. This experience provided Janan a strong foundation in the handling and defense of claims arising under the Longshore and Harbor Workers’ Compensation Act and the Defense Base Act, as well as intimate knowledge of the prosecution of claims for reimbursement under the War Hazards Compensation Act.
Janan’s expansive knowledge and command of these statutory workers’ compensation programs, combined with her extensive experience creating, implementing, and maintaining ground support services and capabilities across the globe, enables JAG International to service all facets of international claims from A-Z with unparalleled expertise. Importantly, Janan personally spends considerable time abroad working in the field to recruit, train, expand and continually improve company services.
Janan is an alumnus of the University of California, Davis, from which she received a degree in International Relations with an emphasis on Peace and Security in the Middle East and Africa. She remains interested in the politics of war, and she cherishes the opportunity to work abroad where the experiences in the field, and the relationships she has made, challenge her to constantly evolve.
Janan enjoys all things outdoors and is fiercely passionate about food and wine. Surrounded by a pack of avid sports fans, Janan is determined to stand her ground and remain uninterested… at least until her kids start competing. Her greatest accomplishment is being a mother to her 3 young children who teach and inspire her beyond measure.
